      April 2016
      Cause of Tinnitus:
      Not sure, maybe dental and facial nerve

      I went to a Chiro yestreday and for some reason he thought it was a good idea to put his finger inside my mouth and touch the muscles on my left jaw and press them....

      I now see a light red mark on my left cheek and the area is T has gone crazy high!! Had to take Valium to goto sleep.

      If this a spike ? Will this settle much time will this take ?

      Feeling very depressed today....please help.

      Best Regards, Mita

      Hi Paromita,
      Sounds like your tinnitus might be from jaw inflamation.
      It will settle down over the weekend.
      If not already might be worth a visit to the dentist see if you have TMJ....lots of love glynis

      There's a good chance that you have TMD. Nerves surrounding the ear pass through the TMJ joint, a fact I saw on a video. When you have TMD, it can affect the nerves, causing the ringing you hear.

      I have the same exact thing happening to me. It gets louder after treatment bit I talked to a few other people that are being treated by chiropractor in this matter and I was told will settle down once muscles relax. This will take months.

      I once massaged my right side jaw muscles and have been having new tinnitus sound ever since, a whistling morse sound. SO ANYBODY WHO READS THIS DON'T MASSAGE YOUR JAW OR MUSCLES AROUND YOUR EAR, AIN'T WORTH THE RISK!

      I hope you're lucky and it settles down once the muscles relax
